2 THE HISPANIC SCHOLARSHIP FUND (HSF) IS THE NATION S LEADING ORGANIZATION SUPPORTING HISPANIC HIGHER EDUCATION. HSF WAS FOUNDED IN 1975 WITH A VISION TO STRENGTHEN THE COUNTRY BY ADVANCING COLLEGE EDUCATION AMONG HISPANIC AMERICANS THE LARGEST MINORITY SEGMENT OF THE U.S. POPULATION. IN SUPPORT OF ITS MISSION TO DOUBLE THE RATE OF HISPANICS EARNING COLLEGE DEGREES, HSF PROVIDES THE LATINO COMMUNITY MORE COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS AND EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH SUPPORT THAN ANY OTHER ORGANIZATION IN THE COUNTRY.
3 30 YEARS IS JUST THE START. DEAR FRIENDS, We are proud to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) and to share with you the report of our results and progress for the academic and fiscal year. It was a successful year by all accounts. This year we awarded almost $25 million in scholarships to nearly 5,000 scholars of Hispanic American heritage. Outreach efforts are gaining strength and traction, and alumni are taking ever greater and more prominent roles in our programs. And our donor base is growing, as our development efforts become more sophisticated. But we still have much work to do (as you will see in the statistics in the next few pages of our report). We are undeterred by these challenges, and are steadfast in our mission to double the rate at which Latinos earn their college degrees because we understand that, to a large extent, our country s future depends on it. We believe that by helping students achieve their goals, we are not only bettering their education, but improving society as well. Realizing HSF s goal of doubling the rate of Hispanics graduating from college will also significantly reduce public expenditures on social services nationwide, and decrease the racial/ethnic divides that undermine social and political cohesion in our country. As the fastest growing segment of the U.S. workforce, increasing college graduation rates among Hispanics will lead to better paying jobs for more individuals, families, and communities. This will produce a sizeable increase in tax revenues including much needed support for Social Security and Medicare. Another benefit will be an increase in disposable income for Hispanic consumers, which will help fuel the country s future economic growth. Doubling the rate at which Hispanics earn college degrees (to only 18 percent) by 2010 would yield $7.6 billion in increased tax revenue over the lifetime of the graduates, and generate at least $14 billion in disposable income for savings, investment, and economic stimulus. HSF is building upon the successes and lessons of the past 30 years in working toward this goal. It is realistic, but requires the support of corporations, philanthropists, educators, and families. Together, we can change the lives of our brightest youth and create an impact on our society. Please join us in celebrating how far we have come in 30 years, while looking forward to increasing the number of Hispanic students who have access to a higher education. Sincerely, Dr. Roger Benjamin Chair, Board of Directors Sara Martinez Tucker President and CEO
4 UNLEASHING THE POTENTIAL OF HISPANIC YOUTH In 1975, a California educator, a civil servant and an archbishop from Texas came together to form the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. They came together because they believed that education was the key to economic and social equality for Hispanic Americans. They believed that the higher education of Latinos was vital to the strength of the country they loved. And they believed they could make a difference. They were right. Their commitment, and the student-centered model they created, remain clear guideposts for the organization today. Since 1997, the organization has been led by Sara Martinez Tucker, who left the corporate world to take the helm at HSF because she too believed. She believed that with a truly national presence, a sound business model, and solid business practices, including reporting return on investment, there would be no limit to HSF s potential. And the more HSF can do, the more likely Hispanic students are to achieve their potential. EVERY NUMBER HAS A FACE, AND EVERY FACE HAS A STORY.
5 A SOLID FOUNDATION At HSF, it s not just about getting kids into college, it s about improving their quality of life and fostering young adults who want to better the lives of people in their community. Educational Attainment Students involved in HSF Scholarship programs are able to achieve their degrees at a rate nearly four times greater than the U.S. completion average, and at a rate almost ten times greater than the Hispanic completion average. Median Income Approximately 88 percent of HSF Scholars who are not currently in school are earning above the national per capita median income. Over 59 percent are earning at least double the Hispanic per capita median income. Volunteer Work Currently 64 percent of HSF Scholars volunteer, which is 16 percent greater than the national rate, and 50 percent more than the national Hispanic rate. WE WANT EVERY CHILD S STORY TO BE ONE OF SUCCESS SETTING AND ACHIEVING GOALS.
6 VISION STRENGTHEN AMERICA BY ADVANCING THE HIGHER EDUCATION OF HISPANIC AMERICANS. DOUBLE THE RATE AT WHICH HISPANIC AMERICANS EARN THEIR COLLEGE DEGREES TO 18 PERCENT BY MISSION GOALS HOLD OURSELVES ACCOUNTABLE FOR INCREASING THE RATE AT WHICH LATINOS GET THEIR COLLEGE DEGREES, IMPACT THE HIGH SCHOOL-TO-COLLEGE TRANSITION RATE OF LATINO STUDENTS, AND AFFECT THE HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION RATE OF LATINOS BY BRINGING COLLEGE PREPARATION PROGRAMS TO THE COMMUNITY.
7 IN 2000, 36 PERCENT OF HISPANIC HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES AGES 18 TO 24 HAD ENROLLED IN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, COMPARED TO 44 PERCENT OF NON-HISPANIC WHITES. OUR MISSION IS TO INCREASE THE RATE OF HISPANIC COLLEGE GRAD- UATES TO 18 PERCENT BY 2010.
8 GOALS IN ACTION: MEASURING OUR EFFORTS WHY OUR MISSION MATTERS To impact the high school to college transition rate, HSF conducted outreach events across the country, touching over 29,000 Latino students and their families in At HSF, succeeding is measured by the tangible outcomes of our efforts. We provide a number of outreach programs to the Hispanic community, including college preparatory workshops called Steps for Success Saturdays (S4S), informational Town Hall meetings, and pilot-parental engagements programs. HSF carefully monitors the impact of these efforts in order to continually improve our educational outreach support. We held eight Steps for Success Saturdays during Approximately 88 percent of attendants that filled out the survey experienced an increase in their knowledge of how to apply and pay for college. Benefits and Costs of Fully Meeting the Goal Benefits Reduction in Expenditures Increase in Revenues Increase in Disposable Income Costs Costs of Increased Enrollments Potential Costs of Support Programs $ Billions of Discounted Dollars A total of 52 Town Hall meetings were held in This resulted in 98 percent of the parents HSF Strategies: Alternative strategies in combination are the only way to meet and exceed our goal experiencing an increase in their knowledge of how to prepare their child for college. Today 50% High School Programs 71% + 81% High School-College Transition Programs 60% + 80% College Retention Programs 64% All Strategies Combined 110% 0% Percentage of Mission Accomplished
9 JUST OVER 11 PERCENT OF HISPANIC ADULTS HAVE A BACHELOR S DEGREE, COMPARED WITH 29 PERCENT OF NON-HISPANIC WHITES. OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE SURE MORE HISPANICS ENTER AND GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE. THIS TAKES MORE THAN JUST FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE. EACH STUDENT REQUIRES PERSONAL SUPPORT. IT TRULY TAKES A COMMUNITY.
10 GOALS IN ACTION: PROVIDING MORE SUPPORT SCHOLAR CHAPTERS By providing support to college students and consistently measuring those results, we can help them succeed once they begin classes. Scholar Chapters HSF s Scholar Chapters are campus affinity organizations that help ensure that Latinos in college graduate. Programming focuses on four major areas: providing academic support, encouraging career and graduate school preparation, reaching out to ensure that younger Latinos are encouraged to pursue college, and mentoring on a college-level. Alumni Mentoring HSF matches Scholar Chapter participants with mentors from among our more than 31,000 alumni as well as the Latino professional community at large. According to Chapter members, academic and professional development through one-on-one relationships is one of the most valuable chapter benefits. In , 48 percent of Chapter participants were matched with a mentor. Of the respondents, 100 percent agreed that HSF Scholar Chapters were valuable student groups to have on their campus. According to 80 percent of respondents, participation in the Scholar Chapters raised interest in pursuing a graduate degree and also raised awareness of academic services/resources on campus.

13 HISPANIC SCHOLARS NEED ROLE MODELS Now in its fourth year, the HSF Alumni Hall of Fame aims to inspire future generations of Latino college graduates by honoring five Latinos whose incredible stories, accomplishments, contributions, and lifetime challenges demonstrate the power of higher education and mentorship, as well as personify the mission and values of HSF. Each year, HSF selects four outstanding HSF Alumni who have received an HSF scholarship, and one individual. The inductees are selected in five categories: The Optimista (the Optimist), for success achieved through persistence in the face of adversity. The Altruista (the Humanitarian), for personifying the spirit of gratitude and the value of giving back. The Triunfador (the Victor), for realizing the ultimate professional achievement and for raising the bar. The Inspirador (the Motivator), for personifying the hard work and sacrifice made by Latino families in pursuit of a college education. Alumni Hall Of Fame Brillante, Alexandra Chirinos Law Student Inspirador, Ambassador Antonio O. Garza, Jr., U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Triunfador, Anthony Romero ACLU Executive Director Alruista, Cecilia Lozano Teacher Optimista, Maria Vidal de Haymes Professor The Brillante (the Rising Star), for personifying limitless potential.
